I went for a run last week in Central Park and got lost.  Thankfully I was up for the adventure and didn’t have anything “riding on it”.

But what if I did?

What if treating my run so casually got me into trouble?

I know a lot of entrepreneurs who treat their sales conversations as casually as I treated my run.

Do you ever catch yourself saying, “I can do it myself”?  If you think it’s saving you money, think again.

I started off 2011 vowing that this be the “year of yes”. Little did I know that my big “yes” would involve a move from my home state of Minnesota to New York!

What have you been wanting to do but resisting?

I love this video because this woman lives in a 90 square foot apartment in New York City and has the BEST attitude.

Rather than grouse about how cramped she is, she believes that she’s got it pretty good because she gets to live in the heart of New York City.

Do you appreciate the independence your biz provides and embrace the attitude that sales is what gives you freedom?

Or do you view it as something that “jails” you?

It’s your choice.

One of my mentors, David Neagle speaks frequently about overcoming the terror barrier. You either back down from the barrier and end up a few steps behind…or you take a breath and bust through those bad boys to achieve bigger and better things in life.
